I've decided that it's about time I properly show off my tattoo, and talk about what it means to me 🐘💐 First off, I just bloody love elephants. They exist in a matriarchy, they're strong, they're cute, they're intelligent, they're funny, they're emotional but won't take no shit either, and they stick together. They're a really underrated symbol of female strength and friendship, and so I decided to get an elephant tattooed on myself to remind myself of what I've been through, and how I'm strong, cute, intelligent, funny, won't take no shit, and am my own friend. I included the Venus symbol for this reason too. It's my own little symbol of feminist badassery. The placing is less symbolic, as it's mainly just where I thought it would look good. A good location for my first tattoo. But it's also surrounded by stretch marks, which I have come to love, and very close to an area of my body that I needed to reclaim after anorexia and sexual abuse.
So my tattoo is body positive, gives a nod to my passions and where I have been/what I've gone through, and is also incredibly beautiful.
Thanks so much Rae at crooked claw for putting this design together and blessing me with it forever, almost a year ago now. Its hard to get a picture of when I'm taking it myself due to its location and size, but it's truly perfect. 🌸
Who else has tattoos that symbolise body positivity or another mental/physical struggle? I'd love to see!
